Business Leader of the Year
The judging panel will be looking for a business leader who has made an outstanding contribution to their business, to the benefit of the workforce, investors, customers and suppliers and also to Yorkshire’s economy and community. He/she will demonstrate strong leadership qualities, integrity and commercial ability.
Board of the Year
The emphasis will be on team work and judges are looking for a company, whether private or quoted, which has maintained a strong performance and profit record. The Board of the Year will also be judged on its composition (e.g. the balance between executive and non-executive directors), its internal and external relations and its general profile in the market place.
SME of the Year
The judges are looking to recognise an organisation with a maximum annual turnover of £100 million that is demonstrating its ability to grow or a strong potential to do so. It must have a clear understanding of the market in which it operates and its future development within that marketplace, together with sound and measurable business practices.
